The Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) yesterday announced it is investigating whether EVA Airways flight attendants who went on strike contravened civil aviation regulations by abandoning their duties.
The 17-day strike organized by the Taoyuan Flight Attendants’ Union is officially to end at midnight tonight.
The airline said 27 flight attendants who abandoned their duties to go on strike had clearly contravened the regulations, as they had reported for work on June 20 before the strike began at 4pm.
The attendants have said that they were taking part in a legal strike and therefore were not obligated to offer any service once the strike had commenced.
